Tania’s Teahouse is truly a visual paradise, the interior decor is all shades of baby pink, with pictures of Drake hanging up on the walls and other cliche but (cute) quotes.

The best part about this place which really makes it stand out from the ordinary aesthetic coffee shop, are the logos that they personalize on your drink of choice (be it a latte, cappuccino, ice coffee, milkshake (basically any drink on their menu). These logos range from various brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Adidas to cute little sayings and honestly whatever else you can think of! It’s super cute and makes for the best instagram picture! If you like pink, cookies, iced spanish latte’s and pretty things, than trust us this coffee shop is a must!

Drop Coffee also mainly serves coffee, but you’ll find a few random treats at the counter. The set up is very modern, minimal and filled with light wood and green plants. There’s cool magnetic chess sets that you can take with you from table to table and what makes this place stand apart from others is there’s technically no menu – the waitors come to your table and ask “how you like your coffee?”, and from there give you options of what they can make you. If you check out their instagram, you’ll see that they have a story highlights called cop or drop where they feature customers’ posts (the drop = the coffee & the cop = cool sneakers), so make sure you show up in your most hype beast sneaks and you might make it onto their story!
